I had never heard of this museum before, but once I did I knew that I had to go and visit there. My teenage son and I got a tour by the museum curator who was very nice and very knowable about the collection that was on display. We found the exhibits to be very informative and nicely done. It talked about everything and anything that was related to the steel industry in the area, including their interactions with the town. If you like statistics they even have some brake downs of costs and nationality of their workers which I also found fascinating. The displays were scattered about the old CF&I Medical Dispensary building. You can even request that they play one of their many movies about the subject, all you have to do is ask at the front and see what title(s) you would like to watch. The museum also has the original old turn-styles out in the parking lot where the steel workers would go through to go under the street (now I-25) to get to work. They had an old rail road car outside the back of the building that also had a display in it. They even restored one of the old playground equipment that the workers kids would play on. They have a tiny gift shop that has several books on steel factories, steel makers, coal people, post cards, drinking glasses, etc... They even had a few things for the kids.

We enjoyed this museum and all the information available. Victoria was so gracious and patient with all our questions. She was a wealth of information and her passion for this project is obvious. It will and should humble you when you see how dangerous this trade is. Take as much time as you can to learn about these strong and proud people. Whether it's the first aid learning rail car, the outside exhibits or the extensive interior collection, you'll learn so much about this company and it's future. Would have loved to have seen some current photos of the interior of the current buildings no longer used, across the street.

Our group only had an hour to spend here; two would have been better. Our docent gave an interesting, entertaining, and informative presentation about the steel mill across I-25 from the museum. The collection - housed in the former mill medical building - has an extensive and diverse collection with photographs, artifacts, equipment, and personal items. It does an excellent job of telling the story of steel, the company that built this mill, and the people who worked and lived there. Well-written signs describe and explain everything in easy-to-understand language. My favorite display was a flow chart on the floor that showed the process from the mine to different types of iron and steel to the products this mill produced. Very well done; very interesting. Worth a visit!
